What Happened to Me?

I am freelance consulting which means I have lots of time during the day (when I'm not also doing Uptown Hound work) to catch up on what the young people are doing these days. My old office had a view of the MTV studios in Times Square, and I used to hate all those people outside who would start yelling (not yelling, really, just going "ooooooooooh"--molto annoying). But I am officially converted. I watched the whole first and second seasons of The Hills, and made an actual plan to be home at 10 tonight to see the season premiere of Season Three. What the hell is wrong with me? Why I do love watching the trials and tribulations of a bunch of privileged 20-somethings who can (and can afford to) go out every night so they can fight with each other? I wish I could quit them, but I can't. I have to go...second half of the premiere is coming on and someone's getting engaged. I might just pass out from the excitement.

Und you acknowledge tat you pe te blind dronk und te vool? I nodded once more.. How delightful! she exclaimed.. I communicated with the editor, who, indeed, expressed his regret, but would not promise any redress.. Prue and I do not entertain much; our means forbid it.. They were old friends; they had been schoolboys together and had been associated in business since they were young men.. I knelt at her feet in gratitude and adoration.. They represent paths which are passable whenever a sum of excitement makes use of them. 'Fo' God! Kernel--I hope dey ain't nuffin de matter, but you's lookin' mightly solemn! I ain't seen you look dat way, Kernel, since de day pooh Marse Stryker was fetched home shot froo de head.. The master looked at the infant giant, and did as he wished, but we say not with what secret resolutions.. The deacon looked at her sharply.. At first I took it for a rumbling in my ears--such as a man sometimes experiences when getting very drunk--but upon second thought, I considered the sound as more nearly resembling that which proceeds from an empty barrel beaten with a big stick; and, in fact, this I should have concluded it to be, but for the articulation of the syllables and words.. To both of us it seemed peculiar that the patient's mother thought nothing of the matter; of course she herself must have been repeatedly in the situation described by her child.. ' Suthing like a bird, you know.. Yes, gentlemen, the words 'I love you!'--the oldest legend of all; the refrain, 'when the morning stars sang together'--were presented to the plaintiff by a medium so insignificant that there is, happily, no coin in the republic low enough to represent its value.. Vardeman explained at the supper table, nearer the vicinity of the downtown theater, where A Magnolia Flower was booked for a week's run.. The power of building symbols in both these special forms of symbols has not died out.. I arose with a shining pate, wigless; she in disdain and wrath, half-buried in alien hair.. I am not sure it was not part of the charm to have a rustic femme incomprise as a client.. it actually re-establishes the situation of the first gratification. The Rotunda, he said, is my genital, the captive balloon in front is my penis, about the weakness of which I have worried...
